JV Lightning DmxControl
By Johan Velthuis
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Lightning DmxControl is a simple light dmxcontroller with 24 channels and 12 presets. It can output DMX through the following dmx devices:
- DMXKing microUSB
-Enttec Dmx Usb Pro.
-Enttec Open DMX USB Interface (not recommended)
- Dmx4all.de mini/nano usb dmx.
- Artnet 3 support (1 universe)
Further, it is remotely controllable by any Midi Controller.
It contains a Scene module now (max 12 scenes in this version).
You can create presets by rightclicking (or ctrl-click) a preset fader and choose 'Channels to Preset' from the context menu.
You can also use a MIDI remote to control the faders. To do so, rightclick a fader and choose 'Midi Learn' from the contextmenu. Move a fader on the Midi Remote and it will be coupled, as simple as that!
What's New in Version 2.0.3
midi bug solved when more than 12 bytes in midi packet (for example a NRPN packet)
solved problem with ENttec USB PRO AND VCP driver, in which the dmx packets were wrong. this meant trouble on some dmx devices.
support for dmx4all nano
problem solved with some Enttec Open USB Dmx devices in combination with the VCP driver.
Useful for testing
I downloaded this app to help me debug an iOS app that receives ArtNet. It did the job, but it behaves strangely:
1) The sliders don't seem to transmit any ArtNet until the undocumented "Force Artnet Output: 0:0:0" menu option is checked.
2) Data arrives in large chunks, causing very un-smooth response in my iOS app.
I'm giving it 4 stars because it's a great beginning and I very much appreciate that it's here for me to use. It just needs quite a bit of work. Some documentation (help info) wouldn't hurt too. :-)
